All Restricted Building Work (residential buildings) industrial and commercial projects are required to have a pre-lodgement meeting in the Matamata Council Office with a Building Control Officer before a building consent is lodged. Contact the Building Control Administration Assistant on 07 884 0060 to arrange a meeting.
Companies that regularly lodge building consents with MPDC can lodge and track their building consents online using Building Online. Register for an account here.
